Organic Cacao Liquor Paste is made when organic cacao beans are placed under pressure and the cacao bean mass (nibs) is turned to liquid at just over 100°f. On cooling, the cacao paste hardens to a solid block and is solid at room temperature.
Ingredients: 100% Cacao Liquor
Country of Origin: Peru
Botanical Name: Theobroma cacao
Many people consider eating chocolate a “guilty pleasure”. But the reputation of chocolate as a junk food should more accurately be attributed to the harmful effects of commercial processing and refining techniques, and the other ingredients commonly added, most notably white sugar. All chocolate is made from the cacao (cocoa) bean, and cacao beans in their natural, unprocessed, unadulterated state are rich in minerals and phytonutrients.
Possible benefits of Organic Cacao Liquor Paste
Cacao has more antioxidant flavonoids than any other plant-based food, including blueberries, red wine, and black and green teas. In fact, it has up to four times the quantity of antioxidants found in green tea.
